BRUNSWICK, Maine — Police believe they now have a motive and several potential suspects in the stabbing of a 37-year-old Brunswick man following a fight Wednesday night on Cushing Street.
Police originally believed the victim was a Sabattus resident, but they determined Thursday that he now lives in Brunswick. He suffered serious cuts and was treated at Mid Coast Hospital and released later Wednesday, Brunswick Detective Sgt. Martin Rinaldi said.
Brunswick police received a call at 6 p.m. reporting a fight in the middle of Cushing Street in front of the Beverage Rack.
Rinaldi said at the scene the caller, a Cushing Street resident, reported two men and two women were fighting.
“The fight was over an allegation that the guy who was stabbed grabbed a kid,” Rinaldi said. The alleged incident took place earlier in the day.
The man who was stabbed, whose name police have not released, suffered a laceration to the upper arm that police believe was caused by a knife. He was not cooperative with police, Rinaldi said.
On Wednesday, Rinaldi said investigators found “significant” evidence at the scene that will be analyzed.
He said Thursday that police have “several potential suspects,” but no charges have yet been filed in the stabbing.
Later Wednesday, police filed drug charges against Peter Milliken, 37, of Brunswick, who they say was involved in the incident. Milliken was summonsed for possession of Suboxone.
The incident remains under investigation.
Multiple people questioned at the scene reported seeing nothing.
Rinaldi asked anyone with information to call him at 725-6670 ext. 162.
